Guest Post: Turks & Caicos: A Trip Report (Part 1)

Editor’s Note: My friend, Brian, is an interior designer and serious foodie. He recently celebrated his anniversary with a trip to Turks & Caicos. It’s an island I’ve been been curious about and I found myself drooling over the photos in his Instagram feed, so I asked Brian to write a guest post for my blog. Below is the first of two parts of his trip report. – Jen

We booked this trip on Jetsetter, and with great rates in comparison to other Hotels. Naturally wanting an ocean view, we made sure to book “ocean view suite”. The resort we stayed at was The Sands at Grace Bay, in the north eastern part of the island called Grace Bay, one of the “worlds top beach areas.” We’d never been before, but we read about the best lobster and conch and seafood you could imagine, all while soaking in the best weather with the most unrealistic blue water.

Almost a Private Island: A Stay at Tiamo Resort South Andros, Bahamas

The view from the dock when you arrive at Tiamo Resort on South Andros Island

My recent stay at Tiamo Resort felt like I was on a private island, without the crazy price tag. Located on South Andros, one of the Out Islands in the Bahamas, Tiamo is remote. I got there via a flight to Nassau, and then a 20 minute hop on a puddle jumper, a short drive in a taxi, and finally a 10 boat ride before pulling up to Tiamo’s private dock and catching a glimpse of the uncrowded beach, floating loungers, and crystal clear Caribbean water. It was worth the multiple forms of transportation.
